Remembering 9/11

News Story

The events of 9/11 have had a profound effect on a generation of people around the world, but our University, located mere blocks away from the World Trade Center, felt the impact first-hand. Come together with us to remember, reflect, and honor those we lost at events being held on both campuses.

The events of 9/11 have had a profound effect on a generation of people around the world, but our University, located mere blocks away from the World Trade Center, felt the impact first-hand. Eighteen years ago, the Pace Community lost 47 members—students and alumni alike—and was closed for several weeks as we worked toward recovery.

On the 10th anniversary of 9/11, members of the Pace Community took part in a short film that documented their experiences and reflections during and after the events of September 11.

Here's where you can remember, honor, and reflect this year:
